Rakugo Performance and Glimpse into the Artistry of Edo-period Woodblock Prints

TUJ Continuing Education is proud to bring Kokontei Hajime, a Japanese rakugo storyteller, to campus to entertain the audience with an ukiyo-e themed rakugo performance. Ukiyo-e is a genre of traditional Japanese art that flourished during the Edo period between the 18th and 19th centuries. The rakugo performance (delivered in Japanese with English subtitles) is accompanied by a lecture (in English), by Yoko Haruhara, one of our program's most popular instructors. Haruhara-sensei will introduce the various subjects commonly seen in ukiyo-e woodblock prints.

Due to social distancing measures, in-person attendance will be limited to 20 participants. The event will also be live streamed so you can join and participate from home!

Join us for a fun and educational evening of traditional Japanese art, and enjoy one of Sangen-jaya's many great eating establishments afterwards.
